Re: Paratrooper straps from Cheapest NATO Straps

I guess the straps come from same suppliers of China on Aliexpress or ebay, as some other CNS NATOs. For that low price, it's worth trying. I will definitely. Looking forward to the reviews.

Re: Tropic diver straps.

BC straps are of very high quality. Durable and decent feel. Won't go wrong with them and their pricing is quite reasonable. However, it seems that all the retailers and distributors are selling only limited colors, almost black and a few grey or blue. I never really try to order direct from the bra...

Re: The Alpina Alpiner 4 thread

What do you Alpiner lovers think of this one?

Re: Touch of Modern - thoughts?

Since I live abroad it is not easy to take advantage of many of the US deals. But, some of the members here suggested to use the MyUS service with ToM. So I bought a watch on ToM for $29.99 and had it shipped to a MyUS account. It arrived, but ToM gave it an inflated invoice value of $120.52 (not s...

hello,
I've been eyeing this watch and saw a refurbished unit going on ebay for about $463 on a leather strap. May I ask what's the lowest anyone seen with the metal bracelet?
The bracelet was at a similar price as the leather version about few months ago. The same seller I believe.

Re: Any experience with MAIKES straps?

I finally got the strap. First impression was that it's real leather, soft, easily comfortable. There are some little glues in the holes. Fair for the price of only about $12. Of course, the quality is not really on par with renowned brands. What disappointed me was I could not get heavy marks for r...

Re: Strap recommendations please!

Great suggestions so far. I have been very happy with my watch gecko purchases so far, but I am also liking the idea of the less busy strap, and I have heard great things about the Rios straps. Thanks for the suggestions. Luckily, even if a strap I pick doesn't work, at 20mm I can find a home for i...

Re: Feedback on Armand Nicolet

Thanks guys, it’s the J09 that i’m specifically looking at, which is apparently a 41mm case, so I cannot imagine that it’s bigger than the Alpina I recently purchased. Will review the video closer tonight, but so far i’m not getting a positive enough vibe to pursue at the current prices. By the way...

Re: Feedback on Armand Nicolet

AN has been on my list, I think some of their models have quite unique design, and worth trying at deep discounts, such as Ashford. They have massive inventory in the past but not now. I like the J09 case shape, Ashford had them at about $800 if I remember correctly. I nearly grasped a silver one wh...

Try aliexpress, I think they ship to Europe. Just search EACHE strap.
